Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor PS3, Xbox 360 falls back to November

Middle-earth-Shadow-of-MordorIf you were looking forward to picking up the PS3 and/or Xbox 360 version of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor later this month, you may need to put that excitement on hold.

Warner Bros. Interactive has announced this morning that the last generation versions of the action-packed Lord of the Rings spinoff has been pushed back to November 18th. The developers apparently require more time to polish up the game, though we can imagine most of the attention has been on the PS4, Xbox One and PC versions anyway.

Official announcement below.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced today that the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor will take more time in development, and the release dates for these versions are moving to November 18 in the Americas and November 21 in Europe. The street dates for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One remain September 30 in the Americas and October 3 in Europe. PC and Steam versions are now slated for release in the Americas and Europe on September 30.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor delivers a dynamic game environment where the player orchestrates their personal plan of vengeance as they bend Mordor to their will. The game begins on the night of Sauron?s return to Mordor, as his Black Captains brutally execute the Rangers of the Black Gate. Players become Talion, a ranger who loses his family and everything he holds dear, only to be returned from death by a mysterious Spirit of vengeance. Based on the player?s actions with the in-game Nemesis System, every enemy encountered is distinct and can evolve to become a personal archenemy through the course of the game. As Talion?s personal vendetta unfolds, players uncover the mystery of the Spirit that compels him, discover the origin of the Rings of Power and confront the ultimate nemesis.
